I need a script (prefer batch instead of vbs) that will determine what OS a domain computer is.  If it is a Vista machine it will copy a file.  If it is not (XP or 7), then it will not copy this file.

The Script would run as part of a GPO on System Startup (I understand this part).

What ServerOS is running?
From 2008 Server you could use a group policy. Use PREFERENCES and Item Level Targeting. You can then tell it target ONLY Machines with a certain OS.

The OS is Server 2008 R2 and this is exactly what I needed.
